Newly Renovated Area, Exciting Dining Experiences and Creative Shops for Special Occasions

DUBAI, UAE, November 8, 2010 - Movenpick Hotel and Apartments Bur Dubai has completed the stylish
refurbishment of the hotel's 255 guestrooms, the expansive lobby, the
Fountain restaurant and Cafe lounge, providing the five-star property with a
refreshingly contemporary image.

"We are all extremely pleased and excited about the new look and feel of
the hotel. Our goal was to renovate the interior decoration, furniture and
fittings of the guest rooms and the main public areas as well as our dining
facilities in order to introduce a fresh and contemporary 'lifestyle' look
which will appeal to the local community and international traveller," said
Robert Barker, General Manager of the hotel.

Principal designer Martin Wojnowski said that the new design makes the
hotel look more fresh and home-like, by avoiding sharp details and finishes
typical to commercial spaces. "I think that the modern traveller is seeking
the feeling of comfort and understated elegance," he said.

"I believe that the hotel now has one of the most guest-friendly lobbies
in Dubai - it is contemporary, but comfortable and relaxing, creating an
atmosphere of harmony away from the city's hustle and bustle."

To illustrate the point, the renovated lobby mirrors guests' living
rooms. Traditional furniture is upholstered in contemporary fabrics,
traditionally made carpet is adorned with modern patterns, and lighting
allows for different mood and ambient options, complemented by creative
artworks and accessories.

Alongside the 255 newly appointed rooms and suites, and added privacy and
amenities of the exclusive Executive Floors, 57 stylish apartments are fully
equipped with entertainment systems and kitchens. The hotel offers six
eclectic restaurants comprising the Fountain restaurant offering
international all day dining, Cafe lounge, an ideal venue for afternoon tea,
a contemporary yet traditional North-Indian restaurant Chutneys, the Lebanese
restaurant Fakhreldine, an English-style pub Somerset's, and a Pool House
rooftop bar serving light snacks and beverages.

Two new convenient venues have been launched: 'Sweet,' an innovative cake
and chocolate shop and 'Flowers', a colourful shop offering modern floral
designs for those special occasions.

Other facilities include a Fitness Centre and a temperature-controlled
rooftop pool, the "Office", a totally new and unique concept combining the
business centre, guest services, a gift shop and a Beauty salon.

"We are very focused on taking the hotel to the next level and believe
that now we can deliver a warmer welcoming and a more memorable and
comfortable stay to our guests," added Barker. "We look forward to welcoming
everyone to the Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai and making it the
city's destination of choice."

The hotel will soon introduce a newly renovated ballroom and meeting
rooms too, creating a relaxing yet stimulating ambience. The Grand Ballroom
can accommodate up to 400 guests in one dramatic room or three separate
sections. The meeting rooms and the ballroom are perfectly designed to meet
the requirements of any event or conference, from company business meetings
to major banquets, receptions, weddings and other social functions.

Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai, perfectly positioned in the heart
of Dubai, is a short distance from many key landmarks such as Dubai
International Airport, Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai International
Conference and Financial Centres, Burj Khalifa, the Dubai fountain and Dubai
Mall among others.
